positioning for vaginal surgery

I was just curious what position are you in for vaginal surgery. I know your legs must be in stirrups somehow, but how do they stay in there when you are out? Is the stirrups like the ones the gyn uses or are they higher. I have had 5 abdominal surgeries and was always lying flat on my back.
I have had back problems for years( old discs injury and arthritis) and am worried about making my back go out.
Any suggestions on relieving the pain that must come from weird positioning?

Thanks alot

They have really nice long stirups that fit your whole leg. They have I think they have lambs wool on them. Im not sure if they strap your legs into it as well.
When they are preparing you for op tell them your concerns about your back. They are pretty good about positioning you carefully if you have problems.
